Forum: GratefulDead Subject: GD quiz question

Hey Now, a little trivia quiz to get your heads in motion on a Monday. I listened to this set yesterday, that is unique , I believe in GD history, an entire set of songs that is entirely 'covers', ie no Garcia-Hunter or Weir, etc songs. Clue - the type of set, in and of itself, was also a rarity.
Always worth a listen, especially in the car, during the summer.

11/29/66? Didn't check every song, but it looks like all covers. I've gotta think there are a fair number of '66 shows that are all covers. Or at least a few.

Probably lots of 1966, you are correct, I should clarify, but it is post 1968, when the 'regular' first set / second set format is in place, and not early in their career, when their own work was few and far between.

Yep I was referring to 6-10-73, great to hear the Allmans playing the leads on NFA - GDTRFB. Good call on the Etta James set, you got me there. That was more like GD was her back up band! I did not see any 1970 acoustic shows that had all covers usually a Dire Wolf or Ripple in there. Thanks for the input, my peace to you all.

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: GD quiz question - new film of GD

this just in (4 days ago)...

On June 10, 1973, Bud Styple shot some 8mm film of GD with his Super 8 camera. This silent 4-minute film clip of his just surfaced on YouTube a few days ago. This was recently pointed out in a post on Lossless Legs.

Bud Styple's film captures some notable pieces of history:
a) Hippies! Lots of them! I resemble that! No more Hippies - they're gone. Throw the baby out with the bathwater. (Throw the GD tapes out with their culture and rich history.)

b) VW campers in the parking lot scene. Lots of them! That's how I did it! (moved around a lot, quickly paid back my student loans, and lived an independent lifestyle). I drove VW bugs from 1974 until 1982. One of my best friends had a VW camper during this same period. VWs were simple, cheap, affordable, reliable, efficient, and easy to maintain. Modern cars are completely unmaintainable due to complex electronics & proprietary s/w codes, not to mention, they are completely unaffordable.

c) FOB shots of stage. Bud's location is to the left of center. He's way up front, possibly a few feet up from where I was taping from. My FOB location was to the right of Bud's location, out of frame. His film shows another Taper's mic on a pole. Is that Bill Gadsden's rig? Bill circulated a partial tape of June 10, and I circulated the entire weekend. Both of us circulated our tapes independently on the internet about 3½ years ago. Bill Gadsden and I are complete strangers. The other thing we had in common was the GD Broom Closet tapes, from Fillmore East, April 26 - 29, 1971.

At LL, Rob Berger said, "I just read a book about the Allman Bros and these shows are discussed. Seems that the Dead's crew dosed ABB and their whole crew." Another LL guy named gyro said, "I didn't see the GD until '76, but many of my high school buddies attended RFK that weekend... they went to see the Allman Brothers and came home deadheads." It was also mentioned that a widely circulated GD Poster came out with a pic of GD on stage from June 10. A guy at LL named Levi501 commented that he still had this GD Poster on the wall of his garage. So he took a pic of it and uploaded it.

I put a copy of this image and a copy of Bud's film clip on the Archive in my collection for the Sunday June 10 show. Visit my Taper's web page for GD & ABB at RFK Stadium on June 9 & 10, 1973.

Holy cow! I saw this poster on a friends college dorm room wall in the mid-seventies and have not seen it since. I've always wondered why I've never found it again, ie reproduced in a book, etc. ....
It was very striking at the time, as I'd never seen Jerry in pigtails and Phil's hat (which I remembered more as a straw hat) reminded me of the one worn by the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Hence I always figured this was one of the those Iowa shows (5/73 or 6/74), as it was obviously an outdoor gig and scarecrows summon up visions certainly of more rural environments than DC!
Thanks so much for posting it. So good to run into this old friend again after so long.

if one had never heard of the GD, and this set was their intro. to the music, the resulting thought regarding the musicians after listening would be, yeah okay, but don't give up the day job

Oh absolutely. The poster mentioned something about good summer listening so that 'Pipline' or 'Wipe Out' (or whatever it's called) surfer tune came to mind. Plus it was all covers with guest musicians so .......

Blue Moon? The idea unfortunately exceeds the execution.
